I have been taking jazz guitar lessons from Dom for almost a year and a half now. His particular approach to teaching music is very refreshing from all others I've encountered before. Dom has a certain way of finding a student's particular sound on their instrument and personalizing each lesson to better bring out this sound. My experience so far has been completely positive and I look forward to more lessons.
Phenomenal musician, great teacher, cool cat - I rate David First INFINITY STARS. I've studied music here and there, but it wasn't until I started taking bass lessons with David a few years ago that it all came together for me. He explains music theory in a way I can understand and translate to actual practice that is not a chore, it is fun and addictive! Besides developing technical skill, Dave also helped me grow as a musician by getting over feeling awkward jamming with other people. I eventually felt comfortable enough to audition for bands and ended up in a fun one, playing out in the city even! David was there for my first gig, too. My husband was so impressed with my progress, he started guitar lessons last year and has come so far, it is amazing. We feel like Grasshoppers to David's Master Po. He is the best, ok I'll stop now, you get it.
My daughter had a terrific guitar lesson with Diana who was very patient with great attention to the fundamentals and we look forward to working with her again.
I can't say enough fantastic things about Christopher. He taught my daughter in home guitar lessons. He is professional, responsible, easy to work with and a genius on guitar. He taught my daughter so much and she plays beautifully. I would recommend him to anyone!
Chris has recently started giving guitar lessons to my 14 year old son who really loves classic rock. Chris immediately started out with songs that my son chose which has been a great approach. My son is really loving playing so far and I look forward to him continuing to work with Chris. Chris is also friendly, responsive and very professional.
I've been taking lessons from Jimi on guitar and bass for years. Excellent teacher.
Sean was a great piano and guitar teacher for my twin girls age seven. He had the perfect balance between patience and direction.
I found the search for classical guitar instruction rather daunting until I discovered the website of James Lorusso (jameslorusso.com). My initial contact from several other entities and individuals proved far too commercially driven for my taste. I was interested in taking formal lessons and learning how to read music not just learning from tablature or playing by ear which I had done for over fifty years. A few hours following my e-mail inquiry I was surprised and gratified to receive a personal call from Mr. Lorusso and was in his studio the very next day. I was immediately impressed with this gentleman. His warmth and finely honed pedagogic approach were so apparent it was only a matter of minutes into that introductory lesson I became convinced I had found the quintessential teacher a true pedagogue and a man of such talent and encyclopedic musical knowledge I was drawn to him like a magnet. Seldom in life does one come across a resource as substantial and charismatic as this gentleman look no further, you have just found a genius who's also as warm as the day is long! My name is Tom I'm 67 years of age and feel like a kid when I'm in Jims studio. In three months he has given me gifts of learning and brought me to places I thought were unachievable. He will do the same for you!
Do you think all guitar teachers are the same? Well think again. Mike Laster is a one in a million find. He makes learning the guitar easy, fun, and enjoyable. Learning something is all about the process and the experience of learning. Mike's knowledge of the guitar, his passion for music in general, and his easy going manner, make for a learning experience you just won't find elsewhere with any other guitar teacher. If you really want to learn how to play the guitar then hire Mike immediately. Your search is done. I learned how to play from Mike (I started as a complete and total beginner - someone who couldn't even make a note) in the matter of a few short weeks.
I have always wanted to learn to play the guitar, so I decided to try to give it a go on my own last year. Watching youtube's, buying iphone apps but found myself not really gaining any momentum. My boyfriend bought me lessons for Christmas with Josh and I am so happy he did. Josh is incredibly thorough, insightful and taking classes with him has been a blast. He breaks it down and really helps you understand the fundamentals of playing the guitar. I'm several lessons in and I already feel like I'm miles ahead from when I started. I HIGHLY recommend Josh, he's a wonderful teacher and learning from him has been so seamless! - ALANA
His teaching is excellent , everything is broken down to my understanding and he is a friendly person. Literally love playing the guitar, Kevin is very comical and I enjoy the guitar lessons!
My experience with Yuto, I could say, was life-changing. The amount of not only knowledge, but really feeling of what Jazz and music in general can be, was endless. Yuto treats you as a real friend, and his lessons are both very practical, but also with a theoretical foundation that really provides a real sense of what you are playing or composing. Also, Yuto, above all, is a great human being, with a big heart and passion for music. We ended up recording some things at his studio and continue to be good friends. I will always thank him and consider him to be one of the best musicians I´ve played with and hope to play again soon with him. To anyone that is looking for lessons on Jazz, or classical or any kind of music. I could, with all sincerety say, Yuto is the one for you. -Diego D.
Michael is an excellent teacher. I start having private lesson with him almost a year ago. He is really professional on teaching guitar, and he is extremely accommodating and patient despite my erratic schedule which prevented me from practicing as often as I needed to. He is able to teach as fast as you want, and does a great job of keeping lessons challenging without being stressful. I have tried different guitar lesson in NYC before I choose to learn guitar with Michael, and Michael is definitely the best.
My son and daughter have been taking lessons at the Piano Workshop of Chester with Sonia for the past few years and they continue to make great progress!
I had been writing songs on the guitar for a year and a half when I started lessons with Natalia. Meeting weekly on Skype/Zoom she had me writing more and better stuff while also working on guitar technique. After working four months with her I had one of my songs win a song writing contest here in Seattle which led to a CD and paid concert gig! I couldn't have imagined I'd be writing at this level so quickly but working with a professional like Natalia can really accelerate your learning. I'm sure I'll be taking lessons from her years from now
Awesome teacher, a lot of guitar teachers dont focus on theory or teaching you how to understand guitar and instead focus on songs and I'm glad to say Kyle isn't one of those teachers
My 12-year old nephew has been taking guitar lessons with John for about three years now and I can't believe how much he has improved! John is patient, kind and inspiring and my nephew is always excited for his next lesson with him. We have had a couple of teachers before John but John is by far the most experienced and motivating. He also has a very structured approach to the lesson and my nephew always walks away with a clear idea of exactly what he needs to practice. I should also mention that my nephew is interested in many different types of music and John is knowledgeable in all fields, and is happy to cater to my nephew's musical tastes while at the same time maintaining an organized teaching regiment. I would recommend John for anyone, he is a great teacher all around!
Jim’s lessons strike a perfect balance between practical, real-world skills and theoretical knowledge. What started for me as “I'll take a few lessons to get some basic skills on guitar as a second instrument” turned into four years of serious study covering many, many concepts, styles and techniques. His ability to accurately read a students skill level and the direction of their interests (as well as his sense of humor) enables him to build a curriculum that stays interesting, challenging and fun. Thanks to Jim, I have a much more complete understanding of the guitar, and of music in general. Ethan Brooklyn, NY
Lou is an incredibly accomplished guitarist who studied with, among others, Eddie Simon (Paul Simon's brother). I needed some structured guitar lessons that would allow me to understand chord structure better. Lou took me through understanding and practicing simple scales through more advanced chords. He always came prepared with charts and tablature for me to keep and his fee was incredibly reasonable. Plus he's really funny. :-)
Charles, the teacher, strikes just the right balance between teaching me things every guitar player should know and letting me decide what to learn. Since I started taking lessons as a beginner one year ago, I've improved, learning finger-picking technique, soloing, new chords, and much more. Charles is extremely motivating, we study together the songs and adapt it with respect to my skills and also to be more personal. He is very professional, responsiveness and dedicated to his students. He is a great teacher, fluent in many styles, has a thorough knowledge of music theory, and keeps classes fun and very interesting. If you're looking for a warm, friendly and professional class to learn to play the guitar, this is where you want to go.
Arthur is an excellent, very well-rounded, guitar instructor. He is very knowledgeable in quite a few aspects of guitar playing - from music theory, playing different styles, transcribing, to all the guitar gear and technology stuff. He has a nice studio, and is also very accuracy oriented, which I really like. I'm into learning to play the blues, rock and metal, and Arthur has been really helpful with that. Highly recommended!
